To lose those pesky 15 pounds,
Forget what the diet doctor expounds,
That calories are the guilty blight:
What really counts is how much you write.
Determine to tickle the keyboard with glee
And you're bound to hit the weight-loss key.
A play, a novel, an epic and such,
No possible verbiage is too much.
With fingers affixed all night and day
To the computer, your target's OK--
The pounds'll fly rapidly, you'll see!
(But so'll your loved one, left solitar-ee.)
